What is The Road?
The Road encourages, equips and empowers people to live life to the fullest through a series of interactive weekend sessions to maximize personal development in your life.
How long has The Road been in existence?
The Road conducted its first weekend seminars in 1995 and since then over 10,000 participants have attended and completed the weekend sessions.
Is this a Religious or Church related event?
At The Road, we respect you for who you are and your individual spiritual beliefs. Therefore, we do not push, cram, preach or manipulate any religious beliefs on our participants. We allow individuals to freely express how God relates to the games or drills, but we do not allow anyone to preach at others. We ask that everyone be respectful of the different belief systems of other people.
Many people come to The Road searching to have a better relationship with God. We have designed the games to help everyone find what they desire. Our program is very church friendly. As part of The Road experience, we spend about one hour dealing with spiritual damage caused by others.
I am currently in counseling, how does this compare?
The Road weekend experiences are designed to educate and empower individuals to enhance the quality of their lives and their relationships. The materials and tools that are taught can be a great addition to your therapy or counseling and many therapists have recommended the seminars to their clients after having experienced it themselves. The Road enhances the work the client does in therapy or counseling.
What is the schedule for each weekend experience?The Awakening: Part 1 registration begins Friday at 6:00 p.m.
The Release: Part 2 registration begins Thursday at 6:00 p.m.
The Renewal: Part 3 registration begins Friday at 6:00 p.m.
Can anyone attend?
You must be 18 years or older to attend The Road weekend experiences. Whether you are single, married, young or older, we feel that everyone can gain value from The Road.
Having served in the Military or as a First Responder, I can come through The Road for FREE. How do I prove my Military/First Responder experience?
At the time of registration on Friday night of the first weekend experience, military personnel must bring with you one of the following: Military ID card, Veterans card, or a DD214 form. As a first responder, please present some type of identification of what organization you worked for. A first responder is anyone who has served or is currently serving with all types of Law Enforcement (Police, State Troopers, Sheriffs, Deputies, Rangers, Marshals), it also includes Search and Rescue, EMS, and Firefighters.
Does the person with the military/first responder experience have to attend with the spouse in order for the spouse to attend for FREE?
No, the military/first responder spouse can attend at the same time or attend at a later date.
If I am divorced or widowed from my military/first responder spouse, can I still attend The Road under the Military/First Responder for FREE initiative?
If the spouse has either divorced or become widowed and has not remarried, they can come through all three Parts of The Road for FREE.
Can I bring my spouse or significant other?
Yes, it is a tremendous experience to be able to participate in The Road with your spouse or significant other. If your spouse does not want to attend we suggest that you attend and gain the value of the weekend experiences for yourself.
Why should I attend The Road weekend experiences?
Every individual person gains something different from The Road, because we are each unique and at different levels of growth and maturity. The weekends are designed to support each individual right where they currently are in life. Some common benefits you may expect to attain through the Road include:
What Are the Weekend Fees?
The first three day weekend experience is currently being offered at a low fee of just $50 per person..
The second weekend experience fee is $349.00 per person.
The third weekend experience fee is $249.00 per person.
We offer package discounts for married couples and for those who purchase more than one weekend experience ahead of time. These discount prices are only available if registration is paid before the seminar.
When do I have to pay?
The Road fees are due in full before attending each weekend experience.
How often are The Road weekend experiences offered?
The Road weekends are being offered between six to eight times a year in our Richardson location
Do I stay overnight?
The Road is conveniently programed around most day-time work schedules. There is no overnight stay.
After attending the first weekend experience must I come back for the very next second session, or can I wait until it is offered in some subsequent month?
We have found that our first weekend participants are excited to continue their Road experience and go to great lengths to continue to the next session to be with their new friends and session participants. The Road staff highly recommends that you continue with the sequential weekend experience. However, if absolutely necessary, you can continue the process and journey at a later date.
Is The Road similar to other competitive programs?
Yes and no - What sets us apart from other programs is that we teach the concepts in our weekend experiences to touch all learning styles. The Road is presented in such a way that each style of learning is able to relate to the material. We use a wide range of learning methods such as:
We present each concept in lecture form (auditory learner), in visual form (visual learner) combined with an exercise to practice what the participant has learned (hands-on learner). In doing this, the participant walks away with more than a textbook knowledge of the material; they have an intellectual, physical knowledge as well as emotional healing. Many of the other programs are more surface motivational in their delivery, whereas The Road goes to the very core of your being. When you attend The Road you will gain life skill tools that will allow you to take what you have learned and implement it into every area of your life.
My friends are so excited about attending and they want me to attend but they don’t seem able tell me what it’s all about, why is that?
Everyone who has attended the weekend sessions at The Road want you to have the best experience possible and don't want to spoil it for you. It would be like telling you the ending to a great movie before you saw it. So much of the learning comes from the experiences you have when you do the different exercises and drills, so telling you what the exercises are deprives you of the spontaneity and learning. Everyone is encouraged to talk about what they personally experienced and what they learned through The Road but to keep the exact nature of the exercises to themselves. We do ask participants not to share what another person experiences so that it creates a safe place for everyone to do or say what they need or want to.
How many people are in each weekend experience?
Each weekend experience is limited to 50 participants. Once we reach the limit of participants in a session, you will be placed on a waiting list or moved to the next available weekend experience.
I am in a serious dating relationship. Do you recommend attending The Road with my significant other?
ABSOLUTELY! We believe that if you are the "right" you, that you will attract the right person for you into your life. And if you are in a dating relationship, it is always better to know your own strengths, weaknesses and potential issues (as well as those of your prospective mate) BEFORE you make the relationship permanent.
